Hunting Tower

Part of the Chatsworth Collection

The Tower stands on the escarpment 400 feet above Chatsworth House, on the edge of Stand Wood. There are panoramic views over Capability Brown's magnificent Park. This unique and fascinating building was completed c.1582 for Bess of Hardwick, ancestress of the Dukes of Devonshire, to designs by the famous Elizabethan architect Robert Smythson. Please note that while this cottage is child friendly, we recommend older children only due to the spiral staircase.

The Tower itself sleeps a maximum of 4 people but since a small stone outbuilding was added in 2006 you can now add an additional bedroom for a supplement to increase occupancy to 6 people. It is located a short distance from the Tower was converted to provide an additional twin bedroom with shower room.
